My Skills

My Skills

Most recently I have been engaged in the architecture, development, sale, management and support of an industrial internet of things wireless monitoring solution for the plastic injection molding and metal stamping industries. The system is based on patented technology primarily of my own invention and authoring. The system consists of wireless monitors, wireless repeaters, gateways, micro gateways, web portal and iOS/Android applications. The development was written solely by me other than some drivers on the wireless monitor board. This development effort was accomplished through the use of many technologies including XBee radios, Rigado modules using Nordic Semiconductor chipsets, C#, C++, ASP.Net MVC, Windows Server, IIS, MySQL, Xamarin, Visual Studio, JavaScript, Debian, Mono, NGINX, XML and more.

Work Experience

Work Experience

Over the last 25 years I have been responsible for nearly all aspects of two different businesses. While in college I started the first business, Samko Technologies, Inc. to provide general hardware, network and office support for clients and then branched into software development, originally focused on inventory management. After the first 14 years in business, I sold the office support portion of the business to one of my employees so I could focus on product and software development. Five years later I became a partner in another business that services the plastic injection molding industry. This partnership led me to invent and patent the industrial internet of things, wireless monitoring solution known as the Mold and Die Monitoring solution.

Accomplishments

Accomplishments

Throughout the last 25 years I have been able to take part in many projects, spanning multiple technologies across many industries. Each and every project has not only helped to feed my insatiable desire for knowledge but has both inspired and challenged me along the way. Technology, on its own, with its ability to become an indispensable part of business processes and life in general, is truly daunting in its versatility and potential. In order to reach this potential, a team of enthusiastic individuals with common goals and clear, communicative and understanding leadership is of paramount importance. When you can effectively combine those two elements something greater than the sum of its parts can be brought into this world and it is in that moment that I feel a true sense accomplishment. There have been many successes, and also mistakes, along the way, but I am thankful for each and every experience that has brought me to this point and I hope to have the opportunity to share those experiences with others who may find value in them.
